Objects of a Preposition

The object of a preposition is the noun or pronoun which the Preposition relates to the rest of the sentence. The object is the answer to the question whom or what when asked after the preposition.

He walked through the door.
She brought the book for me to look at.

In the first example door is the object of the preposition through.
In the next sentence me is the object of the preposition for. Note that the objective case of the pronoun is used.

The preposition and its object and any modifiers which come between them are called a prepositional phrase.
